Thanks for the explanation. "negative modifiers from partially suppressed personalities count normally, and positive modifiers count half" matches perfectly with what I was seeing. Not sure it's "fair", but it may be balancing because it limits a form of potential split personality abuse. In the case of this character, the experience was interesting and educational. I didn't realize how much negative modifiers outnumber positive ones across the spectrum of of the 19 selectible personalities.
